Santos had been fulfilling closer duties for the Jays after the White Sox dealt him north of the border for Nestor Molina. Most baseball folks shook their heads at the deal, as Santos was cost controlled and proving to be effective as a closer. It’s just a short term injury at the moment, and Molina is still working on his craft in Birmingham for the Sox (2-1; 3.80 ERA) so I’m not ready to claim victory on the move. But as was the case with Carlos Quentin, it’s easier to accept when players go on the DL if they aren’t in a Sox uniform anymore.

Matt Adams is a White Sox fan to the degree that few can understand. Growing up in the Chicago suburbs, his parents made the correct choice in making sure that his first live baseball experience took place at Comiskey Park. These days you can typically find him at U.S. Cellular Field, and if you buy him a beer, he’ll buy you one back. When not writing, watching or talking baseball, what he’s doing is anybody’s guess.
